Drugs to prevent pregnancy after 6 days
The exact topic of this article first appeared on www.nimedhealth.com.ng
A lot of ladies out there are always messaging me to enquire if there are any contraceptive pills or drugs that can be used to prevent unwanted pregnancy 6, 7 , 8, 9 ,10 or even 2 weeks after unprotected ssex… This happens after the must have missed taking the usual emergency contraceptive pills like postinor, post pill, Lydia, plan b etc with 72 hours of the act.
Well, postinor, plan b or postpill, Lydia etc cannot prevent pregnancy after 3 days but for sure contraceptive device like IUCD or IUD can actually prevent pregnancy after or within 5 days of unprotected sex….but the problem here is, you need a nurse or a doctor to health you insert it inside you in clinic compared to what you will do at the compared to the emergency contraceptive pills you take at the convenience of your home. IUCD is also more expensive…it cost about $20 (#15,000) and you will also pay for the services of the doctor or nurse.
It is important for you to know that IUCD does not guarantee you 100percent success rate of preventing pregnancy after 6 days…it could fail.
Caveat: Preventing pregnancy after 6 days of unprotected sex especially if it happened in your fertile or unsafe period is a Herculean task that is most likely going to fail….the zygote would have been formed by then…the good thing is, the IUCD will prevent the zygote from implantation on the the lining of the womb or uterus.
Let’s talk about contraception.
There are different methods of contraception that can protect against the risks of a possible unwanted pregnancy.
The cond##m is the only method of contraception that protects against both unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Properly used, it protects against 98% of a pregnancy.
👉Intrauterine Device (#IUD):
Already discussed this as regards Preventing pregnancy after 3 days or after 6 days. There are 2 types of IUDs: copper and hormonal. Placed inside the uterus by qualified medical personnel, the IUD provides 99% protection against unwanted pregnancy. Its duration of action varies from 4 to 10 years depending on the type of IUD but can be removed at any time.
hormone administered intramuscularly every three months. This method is very effective but can cause side effects ( weight gain, delayed periods…).
Efficiency: 91 – 97%.
The contraceptive implant releases hormones continuously. It has the shape of a small cylindrical stick and measures 4 cm long for 2 mm wide. It is inserted on the internet side of the arm, under the skin.
The doctor or midwife inserts the implant under local anesthesia, which only lasts a few minutes. It can be removed as soon as you wish but cannot remain in place for more than 3 years.
99% effectiveness. .
The pill is a small tablet that must be taken every day at the same time for 21 days followed by a 7 day break, or 28 days depending on the pill. The pill acts thanks to different hormones, each pill containing one or two.
Withdrawal (coitus interruptus), periodic abstinence, the temperature curve, etc. are natural methods of contraception. They require a very good knowledge of one’s body and very regular cycles.
Natural contraceptive methods are restrictive, unreliable and do not provide sufficient protection against the risk of pregnancy.
I know that you often use salt, honey, whiskey, etc. to prevent pregnancy which are all ineffective.
